and as you could clearly see there bullets hitting the bus the driver turned the vehicle around to get to safety as the shooting continued and the cameraman was fatally wounded and died within an hour incident came just a day before a ceasefire between the ukrainian army and self-defense fighters expires another reporter from russia's channel one was also on that bus and here is how he described. the attack. in the room. when we got out of shooting range the driver stopped the bus to wait for other journalists who were following in cars when we all got out of the boss and everyone was either calling home or calling their editors and then about a minute we saw signal flare in the sky and then the shooting started everyone ran towards the bus they were shooting at the vehicle i was on the driver side and jumped in a bullet whizzed past me and then i saw that it hit the driver i saw blood on his head he started driving anyway but then fell dizzy and the bus veered into a ditch and stopped i ran out and saw someone was wounded and realized it was on
a totally we were trying to find a car to get him to hospital and when we started taking him out of the bus he turned around and his last words were the camera the camera then in the car he was conscious for a while but he lost consciousness when we got near the accident and emergency station they try to revive him for about half an hour but then they came out and said there was nothing more they could have done. russia is demanding an investigation into the death of the cameramen and for those responsible to be punished it's not the first time russian journalists have been caught in ukraine's crossfire just two weeks ago army artillery fire killed a correspondent and a sound engineer while they were filming refugees outside the city of lugansk a reporter for artie's video agency ripley was severely wounded by soldiers in the city of mariupol last month and it took several days to negotiate his return to moscow journalists often detained without charge by government forces and
correspondents for various russian news channels have been apprehended interrogated and even beaten. of the incident came at a time of declared truce in the east of the country president putin along with his german and french counterparts are schooled on ukrainian leader page of poroshenko to extend the ceasefire that expires at seven pm g.m.t. on monday they held a phone conversation overnight maria financial reports on how the ceasefire affected life in the embattled area. those we have been able to speak to here in the city of lagos going to three have been telling us that the brain relative calm as a noise became more silent so that finally people now could sleep but of course we continue here hearing about sporadic fire often resulting in fatalities including among civilian population we heard that the city open sounds could be. called and patellar gratian repeatedly came under fire with residential areas and
a woman killed a church was also at the car when during mass was happening there and there were also a series of explosions at the state internets no soldiers were there at the time we've been here in ukraine in military repeatedly that whichever koreans were attacked by self-defense forces well we can say that unfortunately what tab or piece the reason now in these parts of the country remains very very for a job and of course people very tired they are exhausted over this situation of months of clashes and months of tensions many fled already the country with many stay here and who have been hearing from many of them that their plan is that in case of emergency in case of need they will use ma'am shelters and we visited some of them and here's my report about batch this is a bomb shelter watch out it was built decades ago when ukraine was part of the u.s. to soar at the height of the cold war and it seems these dog times are returning to
these parts of the war old the enemy may be different but these abandoned soldiers are now coming back to life. as they say if you want peace prepare for war the diem a resident volunteered to clean up soviet era bunkers they could provide a crucial to funds against on the air raids and to refine he says. we speak to the dean during what is supposed to be a cease fire they keep bombing us which is why we're working here the infrastructure is destroyed so we're taking the most important first steps to fix it and allow people to shelter here similar work is currently underway at many similar stories all over the city about one hundred bomb shelters are already open or posco brazil is a rub around of that there were this not only this fault on me of the role of
rather the issue credible and i just heard that there were about the last one more but the board there is a row with the common core of not of but there is a lady but i must say. that i am that boy in my longer with but i feel awful for mom for me with there will be a priority at this program or in your mother's of where we are through this group with come out of. there is also a kitchenette with some basic food and first aid kits. and more than that for board suddenly we hear was sounds like distant shooting daughters organization. from of authority in one. thousand households in the us after which all but at least one you've heard of a keyboard. when we filmed vitalis daughter noster stops by. she also heard what we did. there i describe it was laid out with explosions when
we were walking home through a filter then there were sirens and area one started running away it was terrifying the same thing happened later that night this is fire expires in just a few hours time and no one can say for sure whether these long abandoned bomb shelters will be needed again. lugansk eastern ukraine. and you can see dramatic images from the ukrainian conflict for yourself just head to our web site that's r.t. dot com. in other news jihadist militants fighting in syria and iraq have declared the creation of an islamist state spanning parts of both countries the now notorious al-qaeda breakaway group known as the islamic state of iraq and syria or isis is behind that declaration and they are urging other jihadist groups to pledge allegiance to the new state as you can clearly see on our map the territory covers the north of syria and the eastern half of iraq which is home to
rich oil fields so the question arises where exactly does isis get the funding that it needs in order to seize power in the region well it's thought that the group powerful sponsors in the gulf states which fund its activities isis is also involved in smuggling extortion and bank robberies in the course of its rapid advance on baghdad the group took control of stockpiles of u.s. made weaponry and even washington has played its role in the rise of isis's parties marina portnoy explains. then you this terrorist organization known as isis is overtaking al qaeda as brain as public enemy number one sunni islamic militants are unleashing brutality and bloodshed in iraq but its next door in syria during a three year civil war where the extremist group got its start we are where we are because we armed the syrian rebels we have been fighting alongside al-qaeda fighting alongside isis isis is now in bold and in two countries but here's the
anomaly we're with isis in syria we're on the same sort of the war so those who want to get involved to stop isis in iraq are allied with isis in syria that is the real contradiction to this whole policy according to reports the us government may have inadvertently played a direct role in strengthening extremists they're also allegations that the united states may have been involved and some of the training i see with insurgents went at a training camp in jordan so the saudis the qataris all those are directly involved in this regime change policy in syria and in iraq and united states has helped and created these conditions and this will cause chaos and expanding war in the region according to german magazine der spiegel americans were still in jordan in march of last year training up to twelve hundred members of the free syrian army
to use anti-tank weapon mary we have spent a lot of time trying to work with a moderate opposition in syria now the white house is ready to spend a lot of money the obama administration has requested half a billion dollars to arm and train syrian rebels fighting to topple president bashar assad u.s. officials claim only appropriate members of the moderate syrian opposition will receive american weapons and ammo problem is it's not always easy to differentiate between the moderates and. arest here's u.s. senator john mccain posing with members of isis the photo is now reportedly being circulated by the group as proof of their legitimacy not to be disputed the legitimacy of isis is gruesome behavior violence so horrific some report osama bin ladin looks like a gentle soul in comparison as the newest group of terrorists is growing stronger and gaining more ground throughout the arab world their safe haven remains in syria
where the white house is promising to send more weapons with the goal of establishing peace merino porton i.r.t. washington d.c. . it's not just go for countries or the u.s. behind the rise of the militants operating in syria we spoke to dr who's saying bhaji from the middle east technical university says that turkey has been widely supporting jihadists in its bid to undermine assad. you know the turkish government and particularly in syria is. entertaining strong. islamic groups we took our money until now have not moved to the third of these four this was about the rather speaking about the certain elements of islamic groups we know that the government of friendly. groupings and those groupings also of. sympathy of the turkish government and the
us is attack on iraq has opened up the already why divisions in it society there is religious strife between sunni's and she's along with the separatists sentiments among kurds in the north and then there are other minorities like christians and turkmen who are in a dire position is to see catherine off reports. and he's exhausted terrified with nowhere to go these are wrong newest refugees in a single day tens of thousands of iraqi christians were forced to flee their homes after clashes erupted between isis militants and kurdish forces. all of a sudden we heard shelling and explosions we didn't know who is attacking us we just knew we had to get out there wasn't any time to panic most families are going to put nothing but the clothes in their backs up food clothes medicines important papers everything will have behind i don't know how we'll get by someone deny to
those blankets and pillows and that's all we have they found safety on the outskirts of the kurdish capital but not much else temperatures through or past a hundred degrees fahrenheit there is power from a generator in a nearby theater but fuel is running out. it's hard to believe that just yesterday this was a completely empty parking lot overnight it's been turned into a makeshift refugee camp. the family has fled in the paddock an entire village emptied overnight the volunteers are doing their best to help however they can but supplies are limited and more and more people keep coming most came from carrick hoshi an ancient christian community on the outskirts of the isis controlled city of mosul it was seen as one of the last safe havens for iraq's do enduring christian population not anymore families like this one are twice displeased they left baghdad at the height of the sectarian civil war. there is no safe place left
in the rock in baghdad they used to slaughter you for being a christian now i'm assuming it's the same thing there is no one to protect us. this is the sound of a country torn apart sunni militants are sweeping across northwest a lot in baghdad and the south shiite militias are digging in the kurds to are on the move reclaiming long disputed territory iraq maybe one country but for how long it actually is sectarian. divide it's real it's becoming more violent and that's why you need to separate the communities and have everybody take care of their own. in kirkuk province we need a leader of iraq's minority turkmen community he's taking us to meet the newly formed militia they face extermination from sunni militants he tells me but he doesn't trust the kurds to protect them either.
which might disarm. that. we arrived to find a deserted village the families have all fled for safety these men stayed behind to defend the land. go up they used to be drivers teachers farmers and businessmen they took up arms two weeks ago after sunni extremists slaughter dozens of their people in a nearby village. no one came to protect us when they attacked not the iraqi army and not the person or god it was a wake up call now we are here to defend ourselves we have enough weapons and we'll fight until the last drop of blood as. determined but outnumbered and outgunned facing an uncertain future in an increasingly fractured iraq.
you see count. iraq. stay with us those are coming for you this hour the taste of free run the palestinian teenagers struggling under military occupation and poverty while i find joy in jumping the popcorn away. and how french could you see what happens when a man sets out to live on only products made in france for ten months. on marriage in the finest moment. to moment. only take. in life. and. i'm happy martin the stories we cover here and. other big stories that have struck that light same time there's a reason they don't want you to now. now let's break the
set. dramas to be ignored. stories others use in their. faces changing the world. to pictures. from around the globe. welcome back thanks so much for staying with us here next is there anything that money. well apparently not a law in where even national leaders are being put up for sale and as i found out
that's not even the strangest law. people can buy and sell or trade almost anything on e bay from britney spears chewed bubble gum to supercars and even someone's life one man in south africa seems to have taken things to the next level placing a lot to auction the country's president the description of the law says jacob zuma has five years' experience as the president is in great health has eight wives and eighteen children the user nicknamed average joe placed a lot added he wanted to trade president zuma for someone with similar skills just cheaper to run and more clever many south africans have indeed been criticizing the president for becoming a bit too costly for the budget for instance he spent twenty seven million dollars just to restore his country house which was fixed with a new tennis court of football pitch helli bad and other high life accessories that's despite many in the country still not being connected to the sewer system while around thirteen million are thought to live on just two dollars a day even though trading humans is a legal this isn't the first time
a living person has been put up for grabs on e bay recently a ten year old girl from england tried to sell her own grandmother describing her as annoying what could only the biggest bid reach twenty thousand dollars but was taken down shortly after while one australian man actually sold his own life the lot included his house his motorbike and a car his business and even his friends were separated with his partner and decided to start afresh his old life fetched three hundred five thousand u.s. dollars and now he's reported to live on an island near panama with a new girlfriend so really almost anything can be found on even a partially eaten group cheese sandwich said to bear the image of the virgin mary thatching a biblical twenty eight thousand dollars no wonder presidents are being listed as well. moving from there to online on a website you can read about the russian company that has launched a pizza delivery service using drones but is unlikely to be getting any orders from
the angry aviation agency. first gets legal backing in california paving the way for a major advance a virtual currencies in the state you can get the full story at a website. politicians often call on people to buy domestic to save local jobs in industry but in the modern world is that even possible will more paris based journalist tried to survive on just french made products and for ten months parties mean a cost of i went to find out how we got along. how frank's kind of person really in this day and age the answer is ninety six point nine percent if you ask french journalist special. attend. and for most of this baseball city the rules of this experience were to get rid of everything that was not french and only use products that god most of their added value on french soil with an average
salary of one thousand eight hundred euros a month i found myself in a situation where i had to buy everything again including furniture. inspired by government pleads to stick to french products to stem the conscience decades long industrial decline the problem is that there aren't many products like these days that a purely french what really surprised me is how much food we import each time i see a foreign product i think it's crazy because it could have been made in front but it's not. but benjamin's biggest surprise was that shoppers probably don't know where their french like goods are really from. today's rules of the european union a crazy if you take the shirt for example and you just so the buttons in front of you have the right to put a made in france label on it it's the last operation the product undergoes that matters. even though it's not hard to find economic patriots like benjamin it is hard to support the french although me according to some experts claim the point he's european commitments are opening the door to point competition and force in
french companies out of business. we estimate that in france there is roughly one plant closing every day between two hundred forty and two hundred sixty plants a year absolute protectionism like in north korea is absolute everybody around the world agrees on that but if we go from one extreme to another where there is no regulation at all the industrialisation comes from globalization but it doesn't happen because some bad guys took the jobs of the french but because the french companies think we will make more money by god. purchase it with patriotism take some effort but shoppers here are giving it a go and the hope of saving local businesses and keeping them in the country retail experts say there's room for all just so long as they play fair one solution being put forward to level the employment standards within the european union and boost local industries so that it's not cheaper to buy foreign products or get them
manufactured applause. i love my wife and i love to benefit from things and i think it's impossible to live completely with french products it costs too much anyway and it takes a crazy amount of time because it's hard to find needless to say benjamin now by n.p.r. his borders again but he's paying more attention to labels and ecological recycle products no matter where they come from marina cost reports in from paris art. because quote we bring in some other global headlines now hundreds of people gathered for a rally outside the b.b.c. studios in the scottish city of glasgow demonstrators voiced their anger over the news organizations coverage of the upcoming independence referendum they accuse the b.b.c. of being biased in favor of british unity. and the shooting in the city of new orleans is left nine people injured two of them critically the victims were caught in a crossfire during a shootout between two men in the tourist area around bourbon street he says
they're looking for the suspects involved in the gun battle. country is dealing with a turf war extreme poverty and unemployment palestinian teenagers cling to anything that is left untouched by the israeli occupation reports now on how free running is helping them to taste freedom. on the rooftops of east jerusalem over the din mohammed and a woman up they'll getting ready to run but this time it's not from israeli soldiers. or free running is a sport that's played outside the only things you need every day obstacles and these boys have plenty of those. affordable sometimes i feel stressed and i want to break free so i practice the great thing about barak or is that you can do it whatever you want it's all deen and his friends were present a new breed of palestinian youth modern internet savvy and connected to the global
social media sphere. of the three. i watched a movie called b. thirteen me and a friend started doing part of course we watched movies on you tube and we practiced alone you practice in order to be professional and famous and while the seems an extreme activity in a deeply conservative society even their parents see the upside. of this are pairs that not accepted in the beginning because it is dangerous but after they saw our progress after they saw they were getting stronger in going away from smoking and problems they started to support us for these boys park or is more than just a sport it's a form of resistance another letter said we are the father of the courts would do this sport in jerusalem to say here we are airplanes stinney and swore alive and doing well. but that doesn't prevent the israelis from trying to stop them of lebanon how. they could perish and tried hard to prevent us from doing this they
are a set of us but we kept it up and rule never stop and across the border just like to jerusalem brothers gaza's adrenaline junkies get paid eighty fix from jumping israeli hurdles filled with started doing it in our club in two thousand and eleven but it was struck in two thousand and twelve so we had to train in the street even israeli strikes don't ski gardens group are free runners it takes more than a pillar of smoke to stop the slaughter policy r r t eastern resulin. crosstalk on the role of alternative media that's coming up next but if you are watching in the u.k. the shady side of delta's involved in the torture of detainees. as a new physician i swear to abide by the hippocratic oath. to the best of my ability
